Semiconductor design, manufacturing and system deployment are being challenged on many fronts due to process variability, device aging effects, ever increasing performance expectations, and the continued reduction in time to volume. Synopsys is leading the industry to solve these challenges with the SLM family, a comprehensive set of integrated tools, IP and methodologies. SLM intelligently and efficiently collects and stores monitor data throughout a system’s life and provides actionable insights through the use of powerful analytics.
IC and system developers using the SLM family of products will reap huge benefits, including more efficient design and improved quality. Predictions of in-field chip degradation or failure are extremely valuable for end users by enabling corrective action before sudden and catastrophic system failures.
